Rock of Ages

A unique display of Welsh geology spanning 300 million years of history

Here, you get the chance to touch the imprints of creatures that died over 400 million years ago, to see the remains of giant tropical forests that once covered South Wales and to wowed by the after-effects of massive volcanic explosions that once rocked the undersea world of Wales.

You’ll also find out why over 70 species of lichen have colonised this unique display of Welsh geology.

The Rock of Ages is such a good display that we’ve created a special website for it!
